People say that the perfect time to travel is before you settle down to get married and start a family. But when it comes to cruising, that is not necessarily true because a lot of cruises are going to charge you extra [sometimes even up to double]. Why do they do this? Because most the rooms are going to be occupied by at least a couple, if not more, and the cruiseline is counting on that income. Now it is true that some cruiselines are starting to have mercy on single people, but that is certainly not true across the board yet. Today let’s look at some ways you might get around those steep fees.
- When you first call to ask about booking a cruise, ask if they have any cabins for one, or studio cabins as they’re often called. Norwegian Cruise Line has kind of led the way when it comes to singles’ cruising. With Norwegian, singles are going to have their own area where other people can’t get into. Singles will also have their own get togethers.
- You could also sign up for a Match program where the cruise pair you up with another single who you’ll room with. They always pair people of the same sex so that nothing awkward will occur..You may find a new bestie.
- Not sure about either of these? You can always bring friend along on your cruise. Not only will that help with cost, it will also give you someone to do things with.
I would love to know your thoughts about any of this.
